Protecting Carbon Fiber Car Parts From Sun Exposure

Protecting Carbon Fiber Car Parts From Sun Exposure

At Feral Industries, we understand the importance of protecting your investment in carbon fiber car parts. Sun exposure can be particularly damaging to carbon fiber, leading to discoloration, weakening of the resin, and overall degradation of the material. Here are some tips to help you protect your carbon fiber car parts from the sun's harmful rays:

1. Use a UV Protectant:

Applying a UV protectant specifically designed for use on carbon fiber can help shield your parts from the sun's UV rays. This protective layer acts as a barrier, preventing discoloration and degradation of the resin over time. Be sure to reapply the protectant regularly for optimal protection. Ensure that the protectant you choose is a high-quality protectant that can be used on carbon fiber components.

2. Regular Cleaning:

Regularly cleaning your carbon fiber car parts with a mild soap and water solution can help remove dirt and debris that can accelerate the effects of sun exposure. Use a soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the surface, and dry thoroughly to prevent water spots. This simple maintenance routine not only preserves the appearance of your parts but also ensures their longevity and performance.

3. Parking in the Shade:

Parking your vehicle in a shaded area whenever possible can significantly reduce the amount of direct sunlight your carbon fiber parts are exposed to. This simple step can help extend their lifespan and maintain their appearance, ensuring they look great for years to come. Protect your investment in carbon fiber parts by parking smartly.

4. Use a Car Cover:

If you need to park your vehicle in direct sunlight for an extended period, consider using a car cover to provide additional protection to your carbon fiber parts. A car cover can shield your parts from the sun's rays and other environmental factors that can cause damage, such as bird droppings or tree sap. Investing in a high-quality car cover can help preserve the appearance and integrity of your carbon fiber parts.

5. Inspect Regularly:

Regularly inspect your carbon fiber parts for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks, chips, or fading, as these can be indicators of sun damage. If you notice any issues, address them promptly to prevent further damage and maintain the integrity of your carbon fiber parts. Our team at Feral Industries is here to help you find the perfect replacement parts if needed, ensuring your carbon fiber components remain in top condition.
